    Change or not to change.....

    Rsv4 RFs can be had for ~16k pre-regd 0 miles. Same spec Pani V4 is 23k

    Even man maths makes it hard to justify the extra.

    I was referring to the base model Pani V4, not the S, but that is certainly a fantastic deal for the RSV4!

    Another negative for the base and S model Panis are that they are 1100 cc, which for Keith might be an issue if he wants to race?

    Totally agree re 16 vs 23 k, would take more than man maths to justify that one lol ...

    All of the latest crop of litre bikes are incredible and have capabilities beyond most riders ability, but whether you're buying a bike for transport, fun or racing it makes no sense to pay through the nose if there's no need to regardless of the size of your bank account. The Pani v4S like the 1299S will be available for at least 2k off list this time next year as the market is so small for 20+ grand bikes in a slowing economy. It will be very interesting to see where BMW pitch the pricing and spec of the next S1K..

    Racing days are more or less over, only did 2 last/this year, track/euros are also more cost effective.
